Wait, Non-Fiction means NON... FICTION?


I've heard some things whilst I'm travelling, but nothing quite like when a friend, who had just been staring intently at his Kindle for two hours, said: "Oh, I don't really read..."

WORLD BOOK DAY: THE LAST FOUR BOOKS I READ


It's World Book Day and this morning it was my responsibility to get my 10-year-old niece to school. It took me a grand total of 1 hour and 10 minutes to get through the treacherous traffic ~ three ambulances passed me! ~ and the sky, pigmented in a variety of ash greys and moody blues, only added to the pathetic fallacy that was this morning's commute. 

Along our way, we were cheered by lots of little people walking to school dressed as their favourite characters. We spotted Roald Dahl's Matilda, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory's Oompa Loompa, a few Elsa and Annas, and my own niece was dressed as "Jane the Zoologist." She came out of the house with a JellyCat snake (bought by her favourite aunty last Christmas) wrapped around her neck and wearing a blue velvet dress. We may have been fifteen minutes late this morning, but I think she looked pretty cool.

BLOG VOYAGE: OUR TRAVEL 'DON'Ts'

DON'T...

BRING NICE CLOTHES/JEWELLERY! In the UK, I always wear my nanny’s gold chain and signet ring. I haven’t taken it off in well over a year so when I arrived at Gatwick airport, I asked my mum’s opinion on whether I should take it.

BLOG VOYAGE: OUR TRAVEL '"DO's"


DOUBLE, NO, TRIPLE-CHECK YOUR DEPARTURE AIRPORT/STATION. Check, check, and check again because we’ve had moments where we've both mistaken flight times and terminals! It's easy to think a flight goes at 4pm when actually it goes at 14:00. Worse still, we have also been 10 minutes away from the bus station in an Uber which was already arriving late, to realise we had got the wrong station completely. By some miracle, we made that bus. It’s an easy mistake, I don’t need to delve further into the importance of checking your departure details.
